For beginning & veteran genealogists alike !
An informal way to get one-on-one answers and help. This meeting will
be an open forum/discussion of your problems and successes. So, bring
your data and questions and let's see how we can help each other in
doing our family research. We often benefit >from hearing how others
have discovered and used various resources. You may hear just the bit
of information you need to find a missing piece of data. Bring your
notes, paper and pencil.
Sometimes it can seem that no matter how much time and effort we put
into a research problem, we can't find the answer! Members who have a
'brick wall' can describe it to the group, and receive feed-back and
suggestions. Many times others have wrestled with the same problem,
and have found a solution. If you have a brick wall to share please
bring the details with you to the meeting.
